The Economics of Environmental Management in Vietnam
Edited by: Bui Dung The, Herminia Francisco
This book is a collection of short reports of research studies conducted by Vietnameseeconomists on some of the most pressing environmental problems in Vietnam. All the studies were supported by the Economy and Environment Program for Southeast Asia (EEPSEA). The researchers have analyzed specific environmental problems by estimating the costs they impose on society and some of the studies have evaluated solutions to the problems using either a cost benefit or cost effectiveness analysis. A few have looked into the behavior of economic agents such as farmers, firms, and consumers to understand what incentives determine the actions theytake in using environmental resources.
